BALLRECHTEN-DOTTINGEN, Germany — In 2021, ystral gmbh recorded the highest order intake in the company’s history to date. The company reports that growth was particularly strong in Asia.
The mixing and dispersion technology specialist, which has been on the market since 1959, projects, constructs and produces mixing, dispersing and powder wetting machines as well as process systems for industries including the chemical and paints and varnishes industries. Compared to the previous year, ystral recorded an increase of 19% in 2021. Growth drivers were the three Asian subsidiaries of the company in Singapore, India and China. In 2021, ystral achieved around a third of its order volume in Asia. On the German home market, ystral also recorded positive results in 2021.
With regard to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is currently a mixed picture at ystral. On the one hand, commissioning at customer’s premises on site — which needed to be performed mostly online in 2020 due to COVID-19 — is currently increasing again. The company was also able to successfully limit time lost due to illness, thanks to home office arrangements and health protection on site. However, the company’s supply chain continues to face bottlenecks — particularly with regard to electronic components, which are required for controls and automation. “The overall supply situation is currently very unclear, and we continue to expect constraints in the next few months,” said Dominik Seeger, Director Strategic Sales at ystral. “However, we are in constant communication with distributors and manufacturers, to minimize delays for our customers.”
Looking forward to 2022, the company reports a promising start to the year. Order intake expected for the first quarter was already achieved at the end of February. “We started very dynamically into 2022, and consequently are optimistic to continue the good result of the previous year for this year,” said ystral Managing Director Karl Prem.
